“The entire industry is developing at a breathtaking pace and offers enormous growth opportunities, both for established companies as well as for start-ups and SMEs that are discovering additive manufacturing for themselves,” said Sascha F. Wenzler, Vice President of Formnext at event organizer Mesago Messe Frankfurt. “The number of suppliers using Formnext to successfully establish and expand their offerings around additive manufacturing and along the process chain is growing all the time.”

“The AM industry is innovative, and developments are moving so fast that ongoing discussion is vital,” said Wenzler. “By incorporating additive technologies into the design and construction of components and products, we can identify more and more profitable additive manufacturing applications. A lively and active industry dialog accelerates this process.”

With its various media and formats, Formnext is aimed at a broad audience from a wide range of industries and is developing into a hub for everything relating to the additive manufacturing industry. “We organize highly specialized technology trade fairs and therefore know the various stakeholders in our industries very well,” said Petra Haarburger, President of Mesago Messe Frankfurt. “With events like Formnext, we fulfill the mission of bringing together the key stakeholders to sustainably connect technology, business, and community. By offering additional formats, we underline our determination to accomplish this goal on a year-round basis and support the AM sector as a specialist partner in addition to the trade fair.”

Improved conference design

Formnext has also refined the way its conferencing program is organized. For the first time, this year’s conference program will be held across three different stages in the exhibition halls. The different focus areas cover key AM trends and applications as well as exhibitors’ technologies and innovations to provide a convenient and efficient way to help visitors to find the product or service they are looking for. This will enable Formnext to further promote important dialog between technology providers and users and make the content publicly available to all stakeholders in the halls.

The Industry Stage focuses on topical, seminal issues such as sustainability and digitization. However, the agenda also includes new business opportunities as well as valuable insights into specific areas such as the start-up and funding worlds. The industry stage program, with its focus on panel discussions and interviews, will be broadcast live on Formnext.TV.

On each day of the trade show, the application stage will showcase a variety of exciting applications from different industries – such as mechanical and plant engineering, the automotive industry, aerospace, medical technology, electrical engineering, tool and die making, and automation, and will shed light on the entire process chain for each industry.

Innovations from Formnext 2023 exhibitors are shown on the technology stage. On each day of the show, there will be a morning and afternoon session in which innovations from the fields of materials, pre-processing, AM production, and post-processing will be presented and discussed.

The call for speakers for the conference program is expected to start at the beginning of April.
